Good Luck with Sales…

Thanks mate..

Very very original, I haven’t seen anything like this before.

Great Template, Good luck with sales ! ;)

Finally Zencart themes!!! Congratulations! Good luck for sales, hope seen many more themes for zencart.

Love it! Nice work on this one. Best of luck :)

Is it compatible with ImageHandler for Zen-cart?

Absolutely, The Demo is using Image Handler 4.


I just purchased this and the header menu is not working properly for me. My first category works fine, but my second category is not showing on the header bar. It works fine on the mobile menu, just when the page is fully extended the category is not there. When I click on the category that works then go in a couple level the second and third category are in there. Its odd, this worked fine in the simcart template I got from you before.


Hi, Sorry I don’t know if there is a new comment.

Sorry my bad, I just realized it too. on includes/classes/categories_ul_generator.php, find : $max_level = 3. That’s why it’s only limited to 3 level, change it to match your needs. Or should I send you the code? Just let me know.

Rather than write a comment, send an email from my profile page : http://themeforest.net/user/sammycorp so I can get a notification.


Right on, I didn’t feel like ripping through the code and trying to figure it out, I will give that a try.

Thanks Sammy!

Themes updated and bug fixed. You can redownload it. Thanks

I sent you by email a screenshot of the problem.

I get it and replied. Thanks

I sent you another bug report I don’t know where it went. The bug is with the alpha sorter that changes between grid view and the other view. If you go to http://demo.themeskiff.com/genesis/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=4_16_23 then before doing anything else click on the button that is already selected, this will cause the products to go null. This should be a simple fix, and its the only bug I could find after testing this for hours. I really like this template!! I think you’ve done a great job with the header mobile menu, its better than any other template I’ve seen so far!

Hi, glad that you found that bug. It’s fixed and updated. Thanks

I just wanted to say that you have surpassed my expectations with this template and with your speedy responses and bug fixes. I’ve been trying to get a good template working with a heavily modified zen cart and every other template I tried had issues. This template had a few bugs, but in under a week the author fixed all the bugs I could find and all the mods I had installed are now working flawlessly!! Thank you so much for your great work, keep it up and I’ll be back for sure.

Glad that you like it. Good luck with your site, Thanks

The fastest and friendliest help I’ve ever experienced when it comes to software and then my first computer was based on a Intel 8086 which means that I’ve a lot to compare with.

LOL..Glad that it’s working fine now. Good Luck With your Site. Thanks

This is a great template! I have had my eye on this for sometime. I am using Internet Explorer 10, and I noticed it doesn’t do the loading animation that it does on other browsers. I understand that IE 10 is beta though, so this may change.

Also, is it easy to add colour to the top of sideboxes for example, if I wanted to?



Hi James, Thanks.

You can change the green color, like top border, button hover color, dropdown menu color from admin page. But, if you want to change the other part which is not green on the demo, you have to edit the css file.

It’s easy, I will help if you are not sure about that.

tried to install the theme by uploading the zip file…said I was missing the style.css file. Saw something about this before I got it, but now I can’t seem to find it. So how do I install this theme?

Hi, Thank you for purchasing my themes. The Documentation doesn’t say that you have to upload the zip file. Extract the zip file first, upload includes directory and rename “YOUR_ADMIN” directory to your current admin directory then upload it. If you are not sure about it, please leave a message with FTP and Zen Cart Admin account to my email. Send it from my profile page : http://themeforest.net/user/sammycorp


This is for a fresh install, and the cart hasn’t been set up yet. Does that matter? I wasn’t planning on integrating a cart for about a month until the site is filled out some.

It’s fine, take your time to build your site first. Then when it’s coming to install it, just leave me a message, I’ll help.


Amazing theme for Zen Cart AND amazing developer! I had an issue with install (my misunderstanding) and I got a reply in less than 5 minutes! Fastest reply on themeforest and so nice! If you purchase this theme the support is the best if you need it!

Thanks Anne. Good Luck with your site.

Hi There,

It’s says that this theme will work on Zen Cart 1.3.9 is that correct?

Kindest Regards


Yeah, that’s correct.

Hi There,

I purchased this theme yesterday and it’s great. Installed in seconds and came with well written instructions so well done.

It’s looks brilliant on my desktop PC and works perfectly on my smart phone, however on our laptop the slider really overpowers the whole site. Is it easy to reduce the size of the slider or is it a major task? Or is there some other way to counteract this on a laptop?

Kindest regards


Thanks for purchasing my themes.

The slider is fluid, the width is the same with the container. If you want to make it smaller, there are three options : 1. Remove the responsive style only at 1200px or above resolution, so the cotainer keeps 940px on desktop/laptop

2. Customize the code, place any content on left/right of the slider

3. Enable left/right column on main page.

Having a hard time installing the theme. Need help, please!


Thanks for the purchase..

It should be easy if you follow the documentation. If you are not sure about this, just let me know your ftp and admin account. Please send an email from my profile page : http://themeforest.net/user/sammycorp

Thanks for the help. Love the theme!

great idea, a wonderful performance! good luck =))

Hi There,

Getting on OK with the Genesis theme. But have hit a problem with the view changer, if you look here http://www.vinylgraphicsigns.co.uk/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=3_12 If you change from list to gird you can see there are no Add to Cart buttons as in your demo and there is an elongated quantity box. Can you tell me where the error is and what I need to do to fix it please. Other than that we very pleased with this great theme.

many thanks

Kindest Regards


I am sure that this bug fixed on the last update. Here is the fix :


Find this :

.listingProductsAction .m-wrap {
    width: auto !important;

Edit it to :

.listingProductsAction .m-wrap, .btnCart .m-wrap {
    width: auto !important;
    margin-bottom: 0 !important;

And if you want to disable the quantity box. Login to your admin page. Configuration->Product ListingDisplay Product Add to Cart Button (0=off; 1=on; 2=on with Qty Box per Product) Switch it to 1

Anyway, you should disable the right column if you have no plan to use it.


Great stuff, that sorted it. Great support as always. Many thanks
